Getting Big Money Out Of Politics Is End Citizens United Goal

A new political action group says that the U.S. Constitution needs a new amendment. The purpose of that amendment would be to overturn a disastrous decision handed down by the Supreme Court in 2010.

It has come to be known as the Citizens United ruling. The effect of Citizens United was essentially to hand over the American election system to the highest bidder — fat cat billionaires, such as the Koch Brothers, and giant corporations, including the various pharmaceutical behemoths and Wall Street banks.

Thanks to Citizens United, political candidates can line their campaign pockets all they want and they don’t have to report where the money is coming from. The result is the halls of Washington lined with paid-off stooges shilling for giant corporations.

but now a new political action committee known as End Citizens United is fighting back. This is a grassroots group that is raising funds and awareness about the rampant corruption that has served to de-evolved the American political process into a blatant pay-for-play scheme.

End Citizens United is working hard to change the complexion of Congress in the coming 2018 midterm elections. It want to flip one or both Houses of Congress from Republican to Democrat control. That’s because Democrats tend to favor getting Big Money out of politics while Republicans prefer the status quo.

End Citizens United has raised $35 million to fight the battle — yes, it takes a lot of money to fight Big Money. The difference is, however, that End Citizens United takes only small donations from hundreds of thousands of average Americans and no corporate cash. To date, more than 350,000 individuals have contributed to ECU. The organization also claims more than 3 million members.

Electing Democrats is a stepping stone to the ultimate goal — a Constitutional Amendment that will reverse the 2010 Supreme Court ruling that drove a wrecking ball through the fundamental nature of American democracy.

The 2018 midterms will be a pivotal event for End Citizens United. The group is banking on a Blue Wave to help further its goal of large-scale campaign finance reform.

George Soros Persists In Fight For Equality With Massive Charity Contributions.

When George Soros’ name is trotted out in the papers you can likely use the headline as a litmus test for the political affiliation of the writer. George Soros is, perhaps, one of the most divisive and misunderstood figures in American politics. Born and raised in Hungary, Soros would emigrate to the United States in the early ’50s in order to chase the American Dream. His life story will make one heck of a biopic someday and no part of it will be stressed more than his active work toward improving society. Soros is the founder of the Open Society Foundations and one of the most impressive philanthropists of all time. Recently, Soros made headlines around the world for his incredible charitable donations. Let’s look at how much Soros just donated and why he decided to donate that amount.

During the 2016 Presidential Election, Americans got an inside look at just how low the bar could be dropped for political candidacy. The rise of Donald Trump and the corresponding decline in public rhetoric made it all the clearer that the political world was about to be changed forever. Many people chose to laugh at Donald Trump and his attempts in politics, likening him to a brash fish out of water, but George Soros was not one of them. Sos realized early on in the election campaign that Donald Trump was not only serious, but he was dangerously serious. Why does this matter in relation to Soros’ donation news? Well, we’ll tell you.

When Donald Trump won Republican nomination, many people thought he was going to lose the election. When Trump won the election, most people were in awe and simply struck dumb. This couldn’t happen, could it? Instead of being in awe or struck dumb, Soros instead chose to get prepared. Since the election of Trump, Soros has been a vocal critic of the disastrous Trump administration and he has been more than willing to make his voice heard with more than just words. This brought Soros to sign away nearly his entire fortune, $18 billion, to the Open Society Foundations.

The Open Society Foundations is the charity that George Soros established in the ’70s. Based on the writings of Karl Popper, the Open Society Foundations seeks to bring social justice, democratic values, freedom of expression and more to every corner of the globe. Over the past 40 years, the OSF has made an impact in just about every country on the planet. Recently, the OSF has been integral in the march for marriage equality, sending humanitarian aid to Africa during the recent Ebola outbreak, and even as a stout supporter of voting rights for citizens around the United States of America.

While Soros’ donation to the OSF has all of the hallmarks of history-in-the-making, a certain subset of people are undoubtedly perturbed. To right-wing figures, George Soros is the ultimate boogeyman. He is already being lambasted for ‘crafting a Death Star’ of a charity via his huge donations. Despite the hysteria and paranoia from the right, Soros continues to persist.

George Soros Generous Philanthropist Who Support Democratic Ideals

George Soros has been able to make a positive impact in the world we live in by ensuring that he efficiently uses his wealth. As one of the biggest and the most generous philanthropists on the planet, George Soros has contributed to numerous humanitarian efforts that have helped many local communities in the United States and different parts of the world. Chris Stone, who serves as the President of the George Soros’ charity foundation, Open Society Foundation, says that the foundation aims to identify the people and the communities that are oppressed and suffering and then to reach out to them through all the means available with the organization.

George Soros has lived an eventful life, to say the least. He is a Hungarian Jew and was born in the year of 1930. After a few years of schooling in Hungary, George Soros has to flee the country along with his parents and siblings to London to save their lives from the Nazi occupation. Around 500,000 Jews died in the Hungarian Holocaust that followed after Nazis took control of Hungary. George Soros and family were lucky to survive the holocaust and flee on time due to the political connection his family had. George Soros studied philosophy at the London School of Economics and along with studying, worked part time as a waiter and a porter. However, after completing his education, George Soros decided that he would continue his career in the field of economics. It is for this reason he moved to the United States from London after completion of his education in London.

In the United States, George Soros decided to make New York his residence as it was the financial capital of the country. After a couple of years of working at a local merchant bank, George Soros had considerable experience in the financial sector that gave him the courage to start his firm, which is today known as the Soros Fund Management. George Soros is arguably the most successful hedge funder alive today, and it is his incredible efforts that have made his firm one of the most prominent hedge funding organizations on the planet with over $30 billion in assets under management. The personal wealth of George Soros is estimated to be around $26 Billion out of which he gave away $18 Billion to Open Society Foundation recently.

George Soros has taken a keen interest in politics as well as philanthropy since the time he started making money. He believes that every affluent individual should make an effort to better the society, which is why he doesn’t hesitate in spending his money in promoting the democratic ideals. George Soros is one of the first public figures to stand up aggressively for the rights of the marginalized communities in the country and across the globe, including the victims of the drug abuse, black people, and the LGBTI community. He also supports many PACs and Super PACs that support the political candidates who back the reforms that coincide with the mission of his charity foundation.
